    Motivation!

    The Officer stood and faced God,
    Which must always come to pass.
    He hoped his shoes were shining.
    Just as brightly as his brass.
    "Step forward now, Officer.
    How shall I deal with you?
    Have you always turned the other cheek?
    To My church have you been true?"
    He squared his shoulders and said,
    "No, Lord, I guess I ain't,
    Because those of us who carry badges
    can't always be a saint.
    We've had to work most Sundays,
    and at times our talk was rough,
    and sometimes we've been violent,
    Because the streets are very tough.
    The Officer then added,
    I never took a penny,
    That wasn't mine to keep...
    Though I worked a lot of overtime
    When the bills got just too steep.
    And I never passed a cry for help,
    Though at times I shook with fear.
    And sometimes, God forgive me,
    I've wept unmanly tears.
    I know I don't deserve a place
    among the people here.
    They never wanted me around
    except to calm their fear.
    If you've a place for me here, Lord,
    It needn't be so grand.
    I never expected or had too much,
    But if you don't...I'll understand.
    There was silence around the throne
    Where the saints had often trod.
    As the Officer waited quietly,
    For the judgment of his God.
    "Step forward now, Officer,
    You've borne your burdens well.
    Come walk a beat on Heaven's streets,
    You've done your time in hell."

    Gets me every time

    Love that one.
    "There is no 'nice' way to arrest a potentially dangerous, combative suspect. The police are our bodyguards, our hired fists, batons and guns. We pay them to do the dirty work of protecting us, the work we're too afraid, too unskilled or too civilized to do ourselves. We expect them to keep the bad guys out of our businesses, cars and houses, out of our face. We want them to 'take care of the problem.' We just don't want to see how its done."
